As Big Data and Spark enthusiasts, attracting fellow fanatics only seemed instinctual. In April 2014, MetiStream founded the Washington DC Area Apache Spark Interactive Meetup, a meetup that has now grown to 2000+ members strong. Similarly with a deep interest and passion for making healthcare better, in January 2016 we founded the VA/MD/DC Big Data Healthcare Meetup which has already been embraced by over 600 members. Our objectives at our meetups are simple: share knowledge, propel innovation, build the community, and have a good time!
Beyond our meetups, MetiStream staff are also very active in other areas of the Big Data community. Our CEO Chiny Driscoll serves as co-chair of the Northern Virginia Technology Council - Big Data & Analytics Committee. We are also active participants of the South Big Data Hub and a proud winner of their 2016 DataStart program.
